Stability of genetic variance and covariance for reproductive characters in the face of climate change in a wild bird population

Garant, Dany; Hadfield, Jarrod D.; Kruuk, Loeske; Sheldon, B.C.


Global warming has had numerous effects on populations of animals and plants, with many species in temperate regions experiencing environmental change at unprecedented rates. Populations with low potential for adaptive evolutionary change and plasticity will have little chance of persistence in the face of environmental change. Assessment of the potential for adaptive evolution requires the estimation of quantitative genetic parameters, but it is as yet unclear what impact, if any, global...[Show more]
